How to change level names?

Recommended Posts

So I've recently just got into creating my own maps, and I am really enjoying it! My question to you folks is how do I change the names of the my map for the intermission screen and on the automap? Can you give me a step by step process? A big thanks in advance.

ZDoom method: MAPINFO(if you find it tricky, just copy the MAPINFO from another wad and adjust it accordingly)

Vanilla and Boom method: First you'll need to learn how to use DeHackEd(or WhackEd if you're on Windows) and how to alter strings. Second, you'll need a program like Doomword(look in Misc) to make the CWILV## graphics. Hopefully this helps.

You can find the one the ZDoom uses for Doom2 inside ZDoom.pk3

zdoom.pk3/mapinfo/doom2.txt

(but don't alter the one in zdoom.pk3 - extract it and use the bits you need in your own WAD/PK3)

I have no idea what I'm doing. Do I need Slade to open the pk3?

Need, no, but Slade3 will open pk3 files.
Or you can use an app like 7zip or winzip.

Or, given that a PK3 is actually just a zip file, even windows Explorer (or any other file manager worth its salt) can do it.
